Gucci Mane ‘The Return of East Atlanta Santa’ (Album Stream)

The Return of East Atlanta Santa is already the best album title of 2016 and possibly of all Christmas albums so I’m already here for it off that alone.

And after Gucci’s engaging convo with Bill Simmons, I’m here for the music too. His spirit is infectious and it comes out in different ways on the track. I’ve never gotten into Gucci’s tunes like the next guy, but I’ll see what sticks on the album below.

Most notably, his collab with Drake called “Both” is one that a lot of people will be firing up when they’re both drunk and high. (One listen and it’s obvious why…) That said, I can’t quite relate to that feeling but this does feature a lot of Drake, including a verse that makes the song jump out with a line about the power of the mind. Lowkey a gem in a song that’ll be known for its hook.

Alas, catch the full 13 tracks below with Bryson Tiller and Travi$ Scott making the other features.
